Dubai to open cancer hospital, research centre by 2020

Dubai Health Authority chief says facility aims to provide treatments for all types of cancer and across all age groups under one roof

Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has announced plans to open an oncology centre together with a research hub in the emirate by 2020.

Humaid Al Qutami, director general of the DHA said that the centre aims to provide services for all types of cancer and across all age groups under one roof, reducing reliance on overseas treatment.

He revealed that in the first phase, the centre will cater to 700 patients, which is 35 percent of the total number of diagnosed cancer patients in Dubai.

He added that this percentage will increase by four percent every year until it reaches 4,000 patients by 2027.

In the first phase, the centre will focus on four types of cancer - breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer and prostate cancer.

Alongside the launch of the centre, the DHA will also be putting in place plans to decrease the prevalence of cancer, ensure early detection, provide quality diagnostic and treatment services and raise awareness about the disease.

The centre will also focus on providing specialised cancer research, creating a cancer patient database, promoting local and international collaborations in the field, using the latest technology and launching cancer training programs.

Al Qutami also said that the centre will begin providing its services in 2020 in cooperation with international bodies that are specialised in the field of cancer treatment and diagnosis.
